I've fell behind here recently. Here are the latest Bama commitments.

Antonio Forbes: Forbes is a defensive end in high school, but he has the size to play defensive tackle on the college level. Forbes finished his senior season with 136 tackles, 13 sacks, and an inteception.

He is 6' 4", 265, 4.65/40. He played his HS football at Meadow Creek HS, in Norceoss Ga.

He is rated a 2 star DE by scout.com

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Nick Kyles: One of the top wide receivers in the south, Kyles combines a natural instinct at receiver with great hands and body control with excellent size and speed.

Twin Brother Jarvis Kyles is a college prospect as well.

As a senior, Kyles had 62 catches, 1050yds and 11 touchdowns.
Kyles is considered the top WR prospect in Ga.

He comes to the Tide from Milledgeville Ga, Baldwin HS. He is 6'2" 190lbs, and runs a 4.6 40. Kyles is rated a 3 star recruit by scout.com, and 44th in the nation as a WR.

Nicks twin brother, Jarvis, committed to MSU the day before Nick committed to Bama.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Mike Ford: This kid is the real deal. I look forward to watching him tote the ball for us.

Mike Ford is one of the top running back prospects in Florida. Ford had a banner senior season. He was the leading rusher in the state of Florida (2,836) with thirty seven touchdowns, and was named Class 5A Player of the Year.

Scouting Report:
Everyone likes football players – guys that just know how to play and make it enjoyable when you watch them. Mike Ford is one of those guys. He never leaves the field. Whether it’s running the ball, defending the pass, or on special teams, Ford is always making plays. He averaged 120 yards a game last season and really went off on opposing defenses at the end of the season. Ford brings a lot of instincts, toughness, and competitiveness to the table. Oh, and speed too. On the track, Ford has been timed at sub 11.0 in the 100m. He’ll continue making plays this season and then someone will be getting a fast, instinctive, and productive back for the next level.

Ford comes to Tuscaloosa from Sarasota Florida, where he played his HS football at Sarasota HS. He is 6' 0", 200 lbs, and runs a 4.56 40. He is rated at 4 stars by bothe rivals, and scout.com. He is also among the top 20 at the rb position.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Brandon Deaderick:
A 4 star DE from Elizabethtown Kentucky. Deaderick is rated 21st at the DE position. He chose Bama over allbarn, Florida, Kentucky, Louisville, and Michigan St.
6' 4" 260, not time.

REBstill Wrote:They all sound like good players but I don't ever count them for sure until Nat'l Signing Date...I've seen some of those that you thought for sure were in the bag go somewhere else and those you thought were lost end up signing. Good Luck to the Tide - I think Shula will get Bama back to where they want to be. (Looking for the same thing out of our new coach.)
Yeah Reb, you can never count em until they sign. It is rumored that we will lose Ward to FSU next week. FSU had never offered him until this past week. Supposedly, his dream is to play for Bowden. I can't say that I blame the kid, if that's what his dream is. I wish he would stay with us, as he has the potential to be a good one. However, Bama has recruited 7 DB's this year, and they will not miss him too much, if he does commit to FSU.

It looks like coach O is doing pretty well. especially coming in late in the process. I read earlier, where he pulled one of allbarn's top defensive recruits today. I think the barn will suffer the loss of chizick, as this makes two today, that has decommitted from the defensive side of the ball.

I really wish Ward would stay... but I do have that feeling he is going to leave.

Yeah, I do too. Shula told him, that he might not have a scholship for him, if he took his visit to FSU, so I figure by that, he's a goner.

I think Shula did the right thing telling Ward that. I think Shula is trying to have exactly enough qualify to fill the 25 scholarships allowed, and he doesn't have room, nor time to wait on Ward.

Ward gone to FSU, as expected.

New recruit:
Travis Sikes out of Nashville, TN. Sikes, listed at 6-foot-4 and 190 pounds, hauled in 44 passes for 1,019 yards as a junior. He caught 54 balls for 948 yards and 13 touchdowns in 2004. He starred equally as a wide receiver and safety for Christ Presbyterian (1A school in TN).

Sikes is likely to be gray-shirted, but he could come in next August, depending on grade issues. He's going to start out at safety and he's a big time hitter from watching his videos. That's why I think he's rated low, as far as stars go that is, because in the database, he's listed as a WR, but he's going to be a safety at Alabama. I like him alot and his videos were very impressive for a "2 star". I've seen some 5 star videos not as good as this guy...


Nashville (TN)
Christ Presbyterian Academy

Height: 6-foot-4
Weight: 190 pounds
40-yard dash: 4.5 seconds....legit time

Let's be honest with ourselves... we can only see us getting two more recruits maybe 3-4 at most:

Roy Upchurch
Colin Peek

Peek might not even choose Crimson, so I don't know what we would do for tight end, hopefully he goes to Alabama.

Fred Rouse
Bobby Greenwood

Here are two guys that could both be going to FSU, I really want Rouse, we need a big time recruit who can make the plays like he does. I have a strange feeling that Greenwood might choose FSU over the Tide, that has me sick to my stomach. (I really wanted Worthington)

Nick Walker, Charles Hoke, and ......the kid that returns from this years team...I can't think of his name right now. Anyway, that will be the three we have to work with next season. I would like to see Peek commit to Bama, but it isn't absolutely necessary.

The DLine will be our strong point next season, with Gilberry, Britt, Griffin, returning, and the additions of Fanney, Washington, and Deaderick. Not to mention the other guy's returning, that were in the rotation this year. We are FINE at DL.

Barring injury, and with the return of a healthy Darby, the rb position should be in good shape too. Darby, Johns, Glenn Coffee, Mike Ford (if he qualifies) Sharrief. Castille, and McClain at FB, with the kid that played some this season backing them up.

Both safties, and both corners return, not to mention Simeon Castille, which will win a starting job in the spring. Harper, and Peprah, with the addition of several KEY recruits at the DB position this recruiting season. Freddie Roach, Ryans, and Garth return as lb's, and will be backed by Waldrop, Stamps, and possibly Keys, if he doesn't start at safety. The D is in very good shape.

The big concern will be keeping BC well, with a new O-line. Bama returns Tatum, and Closner on the O-line, with very little experience coming in at the remaining positions.

Bama also loses PK Bostic to graduation, so that will be another concern, as will the back up qb. It could be Wilson, Gullion, or anyone else at this point.

I'm not worried about Rouse, Bama is loaded at wr, and will pick up one of the best in the country next year, from our own state, not to mention Stover will be returning from JUCO.

O-line, 2nd team qb, and special teams will be our biggest reason for concern at the beginning of next season. all of this is just my opinion.

I agree, and im not worried too much about Rouse either, but you just can't pass up a talent like Rouse. I would like to add to that running back class though, adding Upchurch makes my heart feel better. By the way Rivals.com is showing that we only have 27 commits instead of 30, why is that?

They aren't counting our gray-shirts.

I didn't mean to imply passing on Rouse. He's a very good one according to most recruiting guru's, and his vid's look good also. I simply meant, that I don't think the kid has really given us serious consideration. I could be wrong, and if he signed with us, I would be glad to have him.

I would love to have Upchurch. Have you saw any of the video's on Ford, or Coffee ? They are two very good RB's. I don't know if I've ever watched a rb on tape, that looked any better than Ford. Coffee is no slouch either. Upchurch would be icing, and would set Bama in stone at the rb position over the next 4 to 5 years.
